What is metatarsalgia?

Metatarsalgia is a foot disorder that causes pain and inflammation in the ball of the foot. It may be due to years of overuse, or resulting from an injury, recent strain or sudden change in activity level in the affected area. There are several different types of metatarsalgia, and all can cause sharp stabbing pains, burning sensations, or localized tenderness in the ball of the foot. People with flat feet or high arches may be at greater risk for developing metatarsalgia as well as individuals who frequently jog or participate in high impact sports where pressure on their feet increases greatly. Seeking medical evaluation can help alleviate symptoms and get proper treatment if needed.

What are the symptoms of metatarsalgia?

Typical symptoms of metatarsalgia include localized tenderness and pain over the ball of the foot, inflammation of the surrounding tendons and muscles, sharp pains that may worsen when walking or running on hard surfaces, reduced range of motion in the feet, swelling and burning sensations around the toes. Pain may also radiate from the metatarsal area into the toes or forefoot regions. In some cases, wearing tight-fitting shoes can make the pain worse. It is important for those experiencing any of these symptoms to visit their doctor for proper assessment and treatment.

What are the treatments for metatarsalgia?

Metatarsalgia is a foot condition that causes pain, swelling, and discomfort along the ball of your foot. Fortunately, there are several treatments available for the condition. Visiting a chiropractor for adjustments and alignments of the affected joint can help reduce symptoms. Physiotherapy has also been known to be beneficial in reducing discomfort through strengthening exercises and stretches. Additionally, massage therapy has shown promise with improving blood flow to the area and releasing muscle tension. All three treatments should be discussed with a medical professional before beginning a regimen to ensure that they are suitable for one’s particular case of metatarsalgia.
